My First Ever and Very Own 24 Pieces Pro Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set from TMart.com

I’ve been longing for the longest time to have my own set of make-up brushes, and for some reason I don’t know why I keep putting off buying them. I only buy them in singles and only those that I need for everyday use. After taking up a make-up workshop with Youtube Beauty and Make Up guru Say Artillero (read blog post here), I realized that to achieve professional looking make-up, one must really have the proper set of tools. Of course you need not burn your pocket just to have good brushes and make ups, being a wise shopper is the key and do your research. I was encouraged and vouched to myself that I would decide once and for all, that I will buy me a set of decent brushes, which will be my Christmas gift to myself.

I've been looking around for brush sets that fits my budget but won’t compromise the quality. I was really eyeing for Real Techniques brushes; but those that are being sold locally (imported from abroad), costs way beyond what I can afford at the moment. But if I buy them directly  from the US they cost way way less, though the shipping would costs me a lot in turn. So I'm holding off that thought for now. There are make-up brushes that are expensive and there those that are affordable yet of good quality, you just need to be keen what and where to spend your good-earned money for and not just buy whatever you see on social medias, internet and TV. As for me, I don’t usually go berserk and impulse buy, I usually research what I want to purchase, visit it occasionally and usually wait until something goes on sale.

Thank God I came across Celine Reyes’ ProductArena.com blog review of the brushes from TMart.com! She even had a giveaway of the brush set, just like the ones she purchased from TMart; I joined (hoping to finally have my own set) but unfortunately I didn't win (lol!) But that only left me wanting to really buy my first ever make-up brush set.


For almost I month, I regularly visited TMart.com and browsed for  makeup brushes and putting all that I want to buy in my account’s Wish List tab; I ended up having more than 10 sets in that list. I liked what Celine Reyes bought, but the white and pink color of the fibers and the handles of the brushes made me think twice of buying the exact same set. Reason is I usually don’t own light-colored items because I’m not very good at keeping light colored stuff to its pristine condition, I easily get them looking dirty and old! Lol!


I’ve seen a lot of brushes being sold on social media and local bazaars but I was not enticed to buy from them, because most have huge mark ups from the ones I can buy directly from other sellers/manufacturers. So learning about Tmart.com from ProductArena.com was a blessing! TMart.com's products are really affordable and most of the time cost cheap. They also often (way too often) hold sales for most of their items.

I purchased the following items from TMart.com: First is the 24 Pieces Pro Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set with Black Bag and the second is a bundle deal that included a 78 Color Eyeshadow Palette + 8 Pieces Brush Makeup Set.

My orders came with free shipping through post mail, so it kinda took longer than usual for the items to arrive, plus it got caught up with the Holiday rush. But patience is a virtue, and the items, I must say, is worth the wait. You can opt for a speedier shipping time but it will cost you additional bucks.

My orders came in a big bubble wrapped-envelope and each was individually wrapped. While opening the package, I found myself with a big smile on my face.

I got this 24 Pieces Pro Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set with Black Bag for half of it's original price and the last time I checked, the price has dropped compared to the amount at the time I bought them.

I felt like a professional make up artist while opening this make-up brush set because of the number of brushes that the bag contains; even if I don't know what's the use of some of the brushes lol! Each brush was also individually wrapped with plastic to prevent it from accumulating dust (but I'm going to remove them once I start using the brushes) and placed in individual slots inside the black roll-up bag. It's nice that the brushes comes in a roll up bag that protects and organizes the brushes making it easy to carry and looks like you're just holding a clutch.

This 24 Pieces Pro Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set with Black Bag consist of the following: 6 pcs  Powder Brush, 3 pcs  Powder/Face Brush, 1 pc Foundation Brush, 9 pcs Eyeshadow Brush, 1 pc Eyeshadow Smudge Brush, 2 pcs Fan Brush, 1 pc Eyebrow Comb  Brush, 1 pc Eyelash Brush/Spoolie, 1 pc Eyeliner Brush, 2 pc Lip Brush, 2 pc Oblique Eyebrow Brush and 1 pc Concealer Brush.

For that number of brushes, I'm very sure that this is such a steal for its price! I know that this brush set is not for beginners but that only makes me eager to practice doing make up and maybe someday do it professionally too!

More than its cheap price, what I like about these make-up brushes is that they blend well and make up adhere to the brushes effectively.  Some of the bristles of the brushes are kinda rough but tolerable, but most of the brushes are super soft! 

My favorite is the eyeliner brush, which I use to fill my eyebrows with brow make up. It perfectly fills the sparse area because of its angled shape. I like that they also look like the Bobbi Brown brushes because of their wood handles.

There is some shedding, especially with the large face brushes; although I think that part is inevitable. As of writing this blog post, I haven't tried washing them so I don't know yet if they will bleed and won't maintain their shape afterwards. 

I must admit though that some brushes from this set, like the foundation brush for example, I find the density of the bristles quite thin. Like when I use the foundation brush, when the bristles are already soaked with liquid foundation, it tends to loose its fluffiness. 

Overall, I really love this 24 Pieces Pro Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set with Black Bag. I think I made the right choice in buying them; with its affordable price they are I believe worth it and unquestionably wonderful!

Convinced? Head on to Tmart.com and purchase your own set of affordable and good quality make up brushes. There are a lot you can choose from their website and be overwhelmed like I was!
